So far, I find this very relaxing. I've made another one since this one. I did a better job at the "cheater's bind", but didn't pay enough attention to cutting the squares. So, it's a learning process!

    Thanks all. I'm working on quilt #3 now. It's another big block style. I think I'd like to try something more detailed the next time. I made a couple pot holders before I tried the first quilt that had triangles and such. Since I'm hand sewing anyway. I was thinking a dresden plate something....maybe a table runner.

    Wow! Fantastic job Wendy. Your first quilt top has come together beautifully. Not sure I would have the patience for doing this by hand.
    I have a girlfriend who started quilting by hand but once she saw what I was doing on my machine, she was a convert!
    As we are both new to quilting it has been a super fun and exciting adventure so far. (We're hooked)
    I hope you get the chance to become better acquainted with your machine.
    May your sorrows be patched and your joys be quilted
